    My Two-year HOWA Experiment

    I am also a left eye dominant/right handed shooter as well is my Dad. He has shot his Winchester M70 in .300 Win Mag (that has a Monte Carlo Stock) and .243 Win that are both right handed bolt guns for decades and put down plenty of deer. Of course in the late 70s when he got the .300 and early...

    My Two-year HOWA Experiment

    I am a right handed person that is left eye dominate and my first bolt action rifle that my Dad bought me when I was around 16 is a .270 Win in a Savage Model 110 that is left hand and I still have it and use it. So I thought for years and years a decade even that my next rifle has to be left...

    My Two-year HOWA Experiment

    Sweet the next two bottleneck centerfire bolt action rifle that I want to get after I get my .300 WSM is a .25 caliber (either a 25-06 or a .257 WBy Mag that I have been reading about.) and a 22-250. I really do want to try out a Howa rifle in either of those two or maybe build my first bolt gun...

    Advice on reloads and or factory ammo for my soon to be new rifle the NEW Savage Model 110 Long Range Hunter in .300 WSM?

    Thanks good to know about RL-19 and that is another vote for the Barnes TTSXs. I will try not to overthink it and like you said grab a few boxes of cheaper ammo and work my way up to the premium ones. Heck my brother's 7mm Rem Mag shot the cheap and heavy Winchester Super X 175 grains soft...

    Advice on reloads and or factory ammo for my soon to be new rifle the NEW Savage Model 110 Long Range Hunter in .300 WSM?

    Thanks my Dad use to get those catalogs all the time. I checked it out and wow they have a lot of options for factory ammo and at a good price. I will dive into the other one too.

    Advice on reloads and or factory ammo for my soon to be new rifle the NEW Savage Model 110 Long Range Hunter in .300 WSM?

    Okay I see, I tend to overthink or analyze things. I believe I was confused with the information that people try to explain the efficiency of a short action cartridge vs. a long action, like the debate between the 30-06 and its son the .308 Win. Saying that it can be more efficient out of a...

    Advice on reloads and or factory ammo for my soon to be new rifle the NEW Savage Model 110 Long Range Hunter in .300 WSM?

    It is the same cartridge and that is a good point. I tend to overthink and explain things. Some people say that certain calibers/cartridges are better or more efficient out of a certain length barrel is the reason why I added that in my question. The Tikka was also my number 1 option, but I...

    Advice on reloads and or factory ammo for my soon to be new rifle the NEW Savage Model 110 Long Range Hunter in .300 WSM?

    That is what I was thinking. A box of 50 in Hornady unfired brass is $60, Nosler is $85 for 25, but found on sale for $70. I am sure there are other unfired brass options, but those are what I found at the local Cabela's. I probably will go the factory route and see what comes of it before...

    Advice on reloads and or factory ammo for my soon to be new rifle the NEW Savage Model 110 Long Range Hunter in .300 WSM?

    Thanks I checked it out, the ammunition and reloading forum hasn't been posted on for a year. I clicked on the Model 110 forums, some interesting topics so thanks again for sharing.

    Advice on reloads and or factory ammo for my soon to be new rifle the NEW Savage Model 110 Long Range Hunter in .300 WSM?

    Sorry for the ridiculously long set up for the question or questions. I tend to over explain everything instead of just getting to the point. :/

    Advice on reloads and or factory ammo for my soon to be new rifle the NEW Savage Model 110 Long Range Hunter in .300 WSM?

    I made a thread about a scope for this new rifle and I appreciate the advice I got there. So I am going to ask the other big question about my new rifle that I currently have on layaway, but want to get ahead of the game for when I do receive it in a month in a half. That would be what medicine...

    Meat hauling pack $250 budget

    I am not familiar with AT? Which site is that? Sorry for my newbness. I was looking at the new Cabela's Multi-Day pack at $219, but apparently that is too heavy at 7lbs 15oz for a pack that has 2500-4000 cubic inches of volume. I looked up the MR Beartooth 80 and it is only 6.7 lbs with 5,187...

    Meat hauling pack $250 budget

    Awe that is a bummer, it looks good and has pretty much 90% of a Mystery Ranch or Stone Glacier for half the price. But it is half the price for a reason I guess. I am not sure if it is at my local Cabela's for me to try out at least. For some reason it isn't on their website. I may have to call...

    Meat hauling pack $250 budget

    https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/cabelas-multi-day-hunting-pack I am thinking about getting this one, looks like it can do everything I need for a pack in and out of elk sized game or smaller. Plus only $219 which is more in my pay grade. For some reason it is not on the Cabela's website, but is...

    Meat hauling pack $250 budget

    Those are all great tips, I too want to get a meat hauler pack on the cheap. I won't be going by myself so I don't need something huge for camping gear, but I don't want something too small either. I have that expert voice, just haven't gone through the process for my one time code on Mystery...

    new rifle suggestions

    Thanks you I think so too. I actually was at Cabela's a few days ago and even though they didn't have my gun model on their website, they had a .338 Lapua and a regular .300 WM and I got to hold it and shoulder it. Even though it says it's 8.4 lbs those rifles didn't feel too heavy not near what...

    new rifle suggestions

    The Tikka T3x in .300 WSM was my number one choice for a long time, ever since it came out at least 5 years ago or more. I just never "pulled the trigger" on getting one. I wanted to find someone or someplace where I can shoot it to see what the recoil impulse would be in a 6.5 lb rifle in a...

    new rifle suggestions

    Well I was thinking you only had one rifle that "cheap" plastic stock Savage you mentioned. Looks like you have what you need covered with two .284 cal rifles and one .270. But there is no problem wanting another one to play around with and use. Both those calibers would work rather well for...

    I just got on their site, I couldn't find any of the hunting non tactical models that come pre-threaded for a muzzle brake no matter the caliber.
